The daily experience of children in early years settings and the overall quality of provision depends on all practitioners having appropriate qualifications, training, skills and knowledge and a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities.

All cancellations must be by email – we will not accept cancellations by telephone.

The charge does not apply to briefings, forums or learning community events but you should still book onto these events by emailing child.care@croydon.gov.uk
